Jacob's Ladder

Demonic visions and hallucinations begin to haunt him day and night, leaving Jacob disturbed and searching for answers. Unsure if he is suffering from post-traumatic stress, dementia, or something paranormal, Jacob finds himself quickly spiraling out of control.

Jacob's Ladder Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Adrian Lyne's Jacob's Ladder arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Optimum Home Entertainment.

This is a solid high-definition transfer, arguably one of the very best from the budget catalog releases Optimum Home Entertainment have produced. Fine object detail is consistently good, clarity pleasing, even during the nightmares/dark sequences, and contrast levels consistent. The close-ups look strong - fine grain is easily noticeable, though occasionally some extremely mild noise is mixed with it. Edge-enhancement is never a serious issue of concern. More importantly, neither is macroblocking, which was one of the key issues with the R1 SDVD release of Jacob's Ladder Artisan Entertainment produced quite some time ago. Colors look soft and warm, but also natural. There are no stability issues to report in this review. Finally, I noticed a couple of tiny flecks early into the film, but I did not see any large cuts, stains, marks, or warps. All in all, this is a very good release of a wonderful film that has endured some quite problematic treatments during the years. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Jacob's Ladder Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Optimum Home Entertainment have not provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

I chose to view the film with the English LPCM 2.0 track, and was quite pleased by its solid dynamic amplitude. Maurice Jarre's wonderful ambient soundtrack benefits greatly from it, and many of Jacob's nightmares are now as disturbing as they have ever been. Generally speaking, the dialog is crisp, clean and very easy to follow.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track offers a slightly better mid-low range dynamics, but surround activity is not impressive. The dialog is as crisp and clean as it is on the English LPCM 2.0 track and there are no balance issues with Maurice Jarre's soundtrack.
